  3. Calculate Percentage Change in the Current Year Figures based on Last Year Figures?

    Calculation on the 2 or more parameters drawn by the sum of values in the same column filtered based on other column. e.g. I got sales data for each year. I could calculate
    percent change = (sales 2018 - sales 2019)/sales 2018%
    Please let me know if this is already available via any means.

  5. Conditional Formatting for Scatter Chart backgrounds

    It would be great if we were able to conditionally format the background of scatter graphs. With the play axis it is easy to see change over time, but not always obvious when the data you're seeing is good or bad.

    I have added an example below which shows risk exposure vs risk allowance. When risk exposure is greater than risk allowance this is bad and vice versa. I have achieved this with a transparent scatter chart and a background. I could also have added an image to the plot area. Either way though the background is not dynamic so…

  6. DAX functions that return Report Name and Page Name

    Please create two new DAX functions, like GetReportName() and GetPageName(). In embedded environment, we're letting customers make copies of reports (they supply the report name), and we let them edit pages (name and content). Instead of hard-coding the report name or page name, it would be ideal to use these functions so that the values automatically change as report/page names change. Thanks.

  7. Conditional Formatting Measures for Text in Columns

    I have safety audit data updated 24 hours daily during turnaround events on a plant site. I update my PowerBI report twice daily. There are different color codes in different columns depending on the type of data being reported, but those colors do not come forward into my Power BI Desktop queries. I want to be able to conditionally format those same columns in the same manner as the original data, but cannot seem to write the correct DAX code in the Quick Measures to get it to work (background is one color, text is another color and might be…

  8. Composite Storage Models

    This feature would split the storage of an imported table between in-memory (cache) and disk. The dataset designer would be able to set a policy defining the rows (partitions) of the fact table that would be stored in memory similar to an incremental refresh policy. For example, the model could always store the last two years of data in memory but data older than two years would be stored on disk. (Of course most report queries only access the recent data so this is where the most expensive and performant memory resources should be allocated).

    The data stored on disk…

  10. Enhance your map visuals

    Add more functionality to your Maps visuals, to approach what has been created for '3D maps' in Excel:

    1) add layers, so that you can overlay multiple levels of information on the same visual, with ability to turn layers ON and OFF (this is a huge hole in the current pbi maps visuals)
    2) allow for customization of visuals on each layer, like being able to chart bubbles vs. heat maps vs. region mapping (e.g. zip codes)
    3) add a scaled distance legend
    4) allow toggling between 2D and 3D (nice to have, but lesser priority)

  12. Please extend data categories for measures to live connection

    Last August (2018) ,data categories for measures was introduced by Power BI desktop team .This is a brilliant feature as it introduces possibilities of creating complex visualisation using SVG. This is also great KPI and sparklines workaround.My issue is that it does not work with Live connection (SQL Server/Analysis Service) (Image URL greyed out). Several organisation use their reports through live connection to tabular model. This also resolves dynamic KPI threshold issue which is a limitation in tabular model
    Please see http://www.mssqlgirl.com/dynamic-kpi-threshold-in-tabular-or-power-pivot.html
    Enabling image URL when connecting LIve will be a big win-win situation for both Power BI users and…

  13. Provide an Admin Centre Usage Report App for Power BI accross tenant(s)

    Provide a Power BI App that analyses use of PBI Reports, Dashboards, Datasets, Subscriptions etc. across a tenant.

    Make the App available in the O365 Admin Portal, perhaps elsewhere too.

  14. MODETEXT function

    "Returns the most frequently occurring text in a numeric data set", I believe this would be a nice one to add.

  15. Create my own Quick Measure

    There are measures that I use often but don't see in the quick measure. I would be nice to be able to create my own quick measures instead of recreating them in every report I need it in.

  16. Dynamic grouping

    Let's say I have a set containing 100 elements and i would like to visualize (either in a table or in graph) the top 6 individually (i.e. by Sales amount) and the bottom 94 as an aggregated "Other" element (by mean, sum, etc. depending on the need).

  19. Decomposition Sort Order

    The new Decomposition Visual is great, but it assumes you always want to sort high to low on the metric value. That doesn't work if you add a time field like Month, where you want to show the data over a year, you want by category order. Also some metrics have meaning where lower is best, for example defect rates, so you need full control over the sorting at each decomposition level. The developer should be able to predefine the default sort per level, but allow the end user to change.
